Akaso V50 Pro Review: First impressions, settings, overview of features

V50 Pro action camera with waterproof case and without, looks quite solid, and the plastic used is good quality. The camera housing is pleasant to touch and does not slip. The housing is also matte, which prevents fingering. The 4K action camera looks very aesthetically and elegantly. The big plus ? for Akaso company for the included external 2x battery charger, wrist remote control (easier to work with a camera) and a lot of accessories.

The waterproof case for the Akaso V50 Pro is also very well made of good quality plastic. The waterproof case also looks very solid and has a strong closure.

At the front of the camera is a lens. On one side we find: Micro HDMI Port, Micro SD Slot and Mini USB Port/external Mic. 

On the next side there is a speaker. At the top of the camera is a WiFi Indicator, MIC, Power/Mode Button (red) and Shutter/ Select Button (blue).

On the bottom of the camera is a place for battery (1100mAh), battery cover switch and 1/4″-20 standard for mounting the camera. Big plus for 2x 1100mAh batteries included. Akaso V50 Pro has a 2-inch touch screen with an Operating Indicator.

Akaso V50 Pro Features

The Akaso V50 Pro 4K action camera has many features and settings that you can easily change and customize as you need by 2″ touch screen (big plus!). The touch screen of the camera reacts differently, sometimes you cannot click on the selected function or you will be moved to another function (this is clearly seen on unboxing video).  It may require more practice. The V50 Pro action camera has a simple Menu and easy access to settings. The main menu provides access to the main modes: Video, Photo, Playback, Setup. Through Setup we have access to Video, Photo, Effect, General settings. In the video mode we have access to quick settings: Beep, Mic, Speaker, RF, WiFi. Below are some photos from the settings (also you will find on unboxing video).

The Akaso V50 Pro 4K action camera which we received for testing has the TJT12052018_V6 firmware version. The camera works with Wifi (via iSmart Pro+ app) and wrist remote control (included). As we mentioned, wrist remote control is a very useful device, for example when taking a selfie, you can also use the application. APEMAN ST180 selfie stick was used for the selfie.

iSmart Pro+ app

As mentioned earlier, Akaso V50 Pro action camera can be operated by a dedicated application installed on a smartphone called “iSmart Pro+ app” version v1.2.13. The application allows you to access most of the settings in the camera and is very helpful. Below several screenshots from app.

We did not check exactly how long the battery lasts, for different modes, but, you can always use the same extra battery included (big plus). The big advantage is the number of settings that can be found in the Akaso V50 Pro, but unfortunately some settings affect others and sometimes it is difficult to know which function should be turned off to make it good. The simplest solution is to restore factory settings.

V50 Pro: Video Samples

The most important of course is video and photo samples, so below we want to show you some of them. The camera can record video in .MOV (H.265) format and capture in JPG file. We start from the video. More details in movie descriptions. Of course, you can enable or disable the date stamp function. More details in movie descriptions.

Akaso V50 Pro Review: Conclusions

Akaso V50 Pro Conclusions

V50 Pro 4K action camera from Akaso brand is worth attention. When it comes to recording, better video quality is of course in [email protected] resolution, at 1080p it varies. The big advantage is the large amount of accessories, wrist remote control, 2x 1100mAh battery, and many functionalities that can be set. However, sometimes too many settings can disturb (that’s our opinion). The same applies to the 2 “touch screen, which generally works well, but sometimes you can quickly choose your preferred settings via the buttons on the top of the camera.

Unfortunately, in our opinion, Akaso V50 Pro is not a GoPro killer, although it is certainly a good alternative considering the amount features, price and quality of video and photos. We encourage you to compare samples with previously tested by us 4K action cameras, and to comment. If you are looking for a valuable 4K action camera then you should consider buying Akaso V50 Pro 4K action camera.
